Let’s take a moment, and think about where work occurs in a laboratory. Have you ever started something on your desktop, and then you have to go to another area of the lab or another room to continue the work, but you don’t have access to a desktop/laptop there? There are many areas of operation both inside and outside of the lab, but laptops & desktops are not accessible everywhere, which means you must use paper forms or some sort of third party solution to collect data.
There are also delays in the workflow because information is not available when needed, at the point of work. If you go looking for an inventory item on the shelf based on the query you ran on the computer half-way across the warehouse, then find the item is not there, you waste valuable time walking back to the computer again to search for other options.
Laboratories can address these challenges with the use of the Mobile Solution. By connecting people outside the lab, and those who are mobile inside the lab, you are able to automate your entire workflow. With the Mobile Solution, you can access your lab on the go, record information at the collection site, stay connected and take actions such as approvals to keep the lab operating while you are away.
By accessing your LIMS from your mobile device, you can increase productivity in the lab. This can be accomplished by reducing delays in the workflow due to manual data entry (for example, you could perform tests and record the data immediately), or by reducing delays from not having access to the information you need when you need it, for example when searching for inventory on the shelf.
The Mobile Solution enables you to continue your work, regardless of device and regardless of where you are.
